It's week 35 in our 52 Books Quest and this week is all about Police Procedurals. I love police procedurals and there are so many to choose from.
Currently reading Patricia Brigg's Soul Taken and Mercy is being put through the ringer with this one. I feel like I should go back and reread the series again at some point.
"The vampire Wulfe is missing. Since he’s deadly, possibly insane, and his current idea of “fun” is stalking me, some may see it as no great loss. But, warned that his disappearance might bring down the carefully constructed alliances that keep our pack safe, my mate and I must find Wulfe—and hope he’s still alive. As alive as a vampire can be, anyway.
But Wulfe isn’t the only one who has disappeared. And now there are bodies, too. Has the Harvester returned to the Tri-Cities, reaping souls with his cursed sickle? Or is he just a character from a B horror movie and our enemy is someone else?
The farther I follow Wulfe’s trail, the more twisted—and darker—the path becomes. I need to figure out what’s going on before the next body on the ground is mine."
I read Soul Taken, twice because it was so good. Finished Ilona Andrews Iron and Magic which was a great second read.
Seanan McGuire’s 16th book in her October Daye series Be the Serpent was just released so will be reading it next.
I added a bunch of books to my stacks: While birthday shopping for hubby at Barnes and Noble picked up a few books for me: Pierce Brown’s Red Rising, Mark Pryor’s Book Artist, Susan Mallery’s Boardwalk Bookshop, and Alice Henderson’s A Blizzard of Polar Bears. Already read Boardwalk Bookshop which was quite emotional and really good.
Oh and guess what dummy me did. I went on Amazon and choose four books I loved to send as birthday gifts to family in Texas and they suddenly arrived here. I didn’t change the address. Doi! Fortunately they are ones I wanted to read again: Shannon’s Priory of the Orange Tree, Arden’s Bear and the Nightingale, Rollin’s Sandstorm, and Coes Power Down so added them to my stacks and will arrange for gift certificates or something instead.
